The Arc Celebrates Three Stepping Stones Graduates

July 1st, 2021

Despite the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stepping Stones students continued their studies with classmates, teachers, and therapists both in person and virtually during the 2020-2021 school year.  To celebrate the end of another school year and honor three 2021 graduates, the school hosted outdoor graduation ceremonies on Thursday, June 17th.  Family members gathered during designated one-hour graduation/moving up ceremonies and enjoyed performances by their loved ones and their classmates.

The Arc of Essex County would like to wish all of our graduates the best of luck as they begin their new adventures!
